On Projects and Parking Policy

Transbay Blog is pondering parking policy while browsing the documents for 555 Fulton, Stanley Saitowitz's mixed-use grocery project in Hayes Valley. "Cool, glassy, modern" design notwithstanding, the project asks for the maximum amount of residential parking allowed (and requires special authorization to go that high). Given that, is the "transit-first" policy that politicos keep flogging "sometimes given lip service and then essentially discarded in practice"? "More generally," Transbay asks, "why did we bother spending the better part of a decade crafting the Market-Octavia Plan, only to ultimately betray the spirit of that planning effort on a case-by-case basis?"
